As well as being low carb and keto friendly, these burgers are egg free, gluten free, and grain free. By processing the ground turkey and avocado together, the ingredients hold together better. You could add in an egg if you wanted – but there's absolutely no need for any breadcrumbs or similar.
Because of the avocado I don't recommend preparing the burgers in advance – so make them just before you are ready to cook. It doesn't take long!
How to Make Low Carb Bacon Avocado and Turkey Burgers
Make the burger patties by combining ground turkey, diced avocado, garlic paste and a generous amount of salt and pepper in a food processor.
Blend until smooth.
Then add some cooked chopped bacon and pulse a few times. Form the mixture into four patties – whatever thickness you prefer. The mixture will be rather “wet” but will still hold together while cooking.
Cook them on the grill (or a grill pan if you prefer to cook inside!) until cooked through. A probe thermometer is really useful for this – you need them to reach an internal temperature of at least 165F.
Some mayonnaise and salad leaves go great with this – and if you're looking for some low carb bun ideas – check out my collection of 18 ideas! Shown below is a SmartBun, which you can buy from Netrition. They're ZERO net carbs per bun – highly recommended!
